Skyward

Dear J-

Is it mere logic that keeps our eyes skyward? It seems like most of the religions have some concept of an afterlife, and most of the time, that afterlife takes place with a lofty vantage point (Heaven, Mt. Olympus, Asgard). Has our imagination always exceeded our reach, at least temporarily? We see the clouds, the moon, the sun, and every culture has some story to explain the same sky we all see. Has it been better to touch them, or to leave them untouched? Are we better for resolving the mysteries?
